Teenage Boys Flock to Sarah Palin! Resonates With Next Generation of Men.

I found this story amusing. I generally don’t link to Conservatives4Palin, but their little heartwarming  story of (and I quote) “Christmas Joy” was delightfully irresistible. Americans, prepare to “have your heart warmed” and yes, your “hope for mankind” restored. It seems that someone was so inspired by a holiday family gathering which included a group of teenage boys, that they just had to share with the fan site.  Of all things on the TV that these young men wanted to watch, they picked… Sarah Palin’s Alaska. (hands on heart) Those young patriots are an inspiration for the future. These guys…

The Scallion Speaks – Murkowski Completes Sale of Senate Seat to Native Corps.

Many of you are undoubtedly fans of the site The Onion. In that great spirit of political satire, please welcome a contribution from Mudflatter Publius.

Open Thread – The Victim Chronicles

Bless the Mudflats Art Department. Just when you need the brilliance of the inimitable Flyinureye, there he is with another work, suitable for framing. But don’t put the glass over it or the darts will bounce. I know we all appreciate this one in an extra special way, since we are still in the process of … blogging that dang book. Only two chapters left, so I think we’ll be able to wrap that sucker up this weekend. Won’t that feel good?

Thanksgiving Flashback: Witnessing The Turkey Pardoning Debacle of 2008

by Linda Kellen Biegel So my rolls are rising on the stove, almost ready to pop in the oven. The apple-cranberry pies (think Dutch Apple with cranberries thrown in) are cooled and waiting to be packed up and the homemade cranberry sauce is chilling in the fridge. We’re going to Josh’s brother’s house for Thanksgiving and Josh’s parents made the trecherous drive in the rain and ice from the Kenai Peninsula. Thanksgiving dinner for 22–that’s small for a Biegel meal! When I saw an ad for the Triple-D Farm and Hatchery in Wasilla the other day, I had two thoughts:…

Open Thread – Troll of the Week

Alright, it’s been a lot more than a week since we’ve had our last troll encounter, but Troll of the Week sounds better than Troll of an Undetermined Length of Time. So, there it is. Here at The Mudflats, we like to check from time to time to see what little trolls have gotten stuck in our filters.  Lately, there has been a huge infestation of a type of troll we haven’t seen much before, so I thought I’d drag a few of them out so you could see.  Usually the troll is a solitary creature, ambling in by itself,…

Open Thread – Obey the Turtle!

Whenever Lisa Murkowski did something against the interest of the state and the nation just to toe the party line and appease leadership, my classic explanation to anyone who brought it to my attention was, “Obey the Turtle.”  It usually took some explanation, but eventually they understood.   But flyinureye nailed it, and we never even had the conversation!
